If it was after the 30 days then you have no comeback as you were warned it might be faulty

Puff pant puff pant.....sorry, I was waiting for a full stop so that I could breath again!!

Assuming that you logged your issues with the motherboard with Aria within 30 days then you may have a case.

Even if a RAM clip is damaged they may still be able to test the motherboard for the fault you have reported. Again, assuming that they find the fault and it is not repairable, the damage to the RAM clip becomes irrelevant.

I suggest you ask FE to delete this thread and then start again without including your email address.

Unfortunately we get more than our far share of spammers visiting these pages and a nice live email address will prove rich pickings for them.

As for your problem, I doubt anyone at Aria stayed awake long enough to read to the bottom. Have you tried using punctuation and breaking up the text into paragraphs.

As a tip, and I'm not being sarcastic here, before you send anything off, read it back to yourself, everywhere you pause for breath insert a comma, if the next bit of text has a slightly different point, replace the comma with a full stop.

If the next point is entirely different, then insert a line break...
